the senate majority leader, harry reid. god forbid you would have to see the voters face to face. that is scary. bill: nothing like a good old- fashioned conference call to drive your point home. and i think that the one question that we get more than any other from viewers is that if they are pushing for it this way in congress, will they live by it? megyn: do you know the second question? how does bill tai such a perfect tied? bill: spot on. my neighbor has been asking this for months, if the plan is so great, why not sign up for yourself? megyn: a reality television star, bay on a popular series. she is a bikini model. now she is dead and he is on the run. profile comes from the reality television web site. cops believe he might be the killer. bill: the largest identity theft in history. the number of victims could total more than one-third of the entire u.s. population. how can you defend yourself from line attacks that are this significant? -- from of attacks that are this significance -- from online attacks that are this significant ? are you receiving a payout from a legal

"health care is complex and touches every american. people must be allowed to learn the facts. do you think that the people know what is in that bill? >> i do not believe so. but if the american people had not been speaking out loudly to slow this process down, the bill would have already passed the house. the speaker said tha

hecklers who have protested against the president's health care plans. senate majority leader harry reid called those protestors shrill. robert gibbs suggested the protests are not spontaneous. let's listen to gibbs first. >> i also have no doubt that there are groups that are -- have spread out people across the country to go to these things and to specifically generate videos that can be posted on internet sites so that people can watch what's happening in america. >> the american people want health care reform and we're going to do health care reform. in spite of the loud, shrill voices trying to interrupt town hall meetings and just throw a monkey wrench into everything. we're going to continue to be positive and work hard. >> the senator reid's comments clearly directed at protestors like these exercising their rights to protest. here's how one lawmaker reacted to such a demonstration in long island, new york. >> no one is talking about the government taking over health -- >> oh, no, no! >> another congressman under fire for supporting the president's health care plan, congressman l

destruction clinton to both clintons you name it. al gore, harry reid, they all thought there were weapons of mass destruction there. ted kennedy and john kerr kerry both said there were weapons of mass destruction. when it became obvious in july of 2003 that they weren't. the democrats began to say consistently that bush lied that drove his numbers down. i don't think republicans are going to act in a hyperpartisan way and say that obama is lying. credibility is the most important thing to a president. if your opposition doesn't believe you are legitimate to begin with. and begins this drum beat when they are aided by the media. it can be enormously creditor rosen. some cable people are hammering obama as being incompetent test not as a liar but as incompetent. he is in over his head, doesn't know what he is doing. that, i think may stick. that might stick. >> it may. look, i wrote a column early this year which i said i thought the obama white house was winging it. i think they are winging it to their disadvantage on this issue. i think though there is a difference between saying he is a
jersey governor of new york is in trouble. believe it or not harry reid is in trouble. democrats they don't see the country is not buying into that especially because the numbers on the employment side. stimulus isn't working people -- >> plain old fashioned we worry about taxes and you listen to barack obama's speech at the convention he laid out a very conventional democratic bent kind of agenda. didn't look like a new democrat. >> we have to take a break. talk about professor gates issue when we come back. much much more of the great, great, great american panel straight ahead. >> you feel that -- >> i am going to get females from this audience -- >> from me. >> i think any of us would agree acting the same way as professor gates. we have shown him that we live in this house. >> he didn't show him. >> he showed him his driver's license. he showed he lived in the house and then brought him out and arrested him. >> he walked out onto the porch and arrested him. >> he started calling him a racist and attacked him and he was disturbing the peace. >> everybody over reacted in this situation
with the stimulus bill. this is according -- we showed you this yesterday -- to harry reid, who said, quote, this legislation is the first step in building a clean energy economy that creates jobs. the apollo alliance has been an important factor in helping us develop and execute a strategy that makes great progress on these goals and in motivating the public to support them, end quote. does the president know who this man is? s do the president and america demand and listen to this answer? does the president know that he has now had two pretty big encounters with the founders of the weather underground? that's the group that bombed government buildings. do you remember he didn't really know bill ayers, but now indirectly, the other founder of the weather underground is helping write our bills. we asked the white house today if the president knew. we're still waiting for a response. by the way, we also told you that the white house has tied or wanted to go around the f.b.i. to have some of the vetting done by the white house. f.b.i. seeming seemingly is a little slow. i would think that bas
and the words of senate majority leader harry reid among the possibilities the plans under consideration by senator reid according to "the wall street journal," split the legislation in two. that would be divide and conquer, a strategy that would allow democrats to go it alone according to some of their leaders on the most expensive parts of the bill and then perhaps work with republicans on parts where there is more agreement. congressional sources tell us this is just one of many possibilities now being considered by the democratic leadership and the white house. >>> in a move that some fear to be outright retaliation for opposing the president's health care proposals, a congressional committee led by congressman henry waxman sent a letter to dozens of the country's private health insurance companies demand demanding financial information on their employees. the letters reportedly not sent to other industry groups some of which support the president's plan. a copy of the waxman letter obtained by "lou dobbs tonight" shows that congress wants to know the salary, the bonus, stock option,
majority leader harry reid warned his colleagues they might have to work into their scheduled summer vacation if they don't act before the weekend. so you can bet they will act before the weekend. but even as the program is helping folks in the market for a new car, it appears to be hurting certain charities. you have seen their ads in the newspaper, the ones asking for you to donate your old car. turns out cash for clunkers is a little bit more popular than a tax write-off for clunkers. adam housley is in sun valley, california, with more on that tonight. adam, how much are charities losing? >> shepard, in some cases, 30%, 40%. here at rightway charities in sun valley, a car like this might get $400 in an auction. it will auction off 20 or so cars like this a week. pretty good money going to the local boys and girls clubs and other charities in the area. now they are saying down 30% to 40%. their numbers are dropping significantly which means less money to some of these charities. shepard? shepard: i'm curious about what the specific difference is between cashing in your car and don
